Misery

Misery (1990)

Plot summary

(10 votes)

Novelist Paul Sheldon (Caan) crashes his car on a snowy New England road. He is found by Annie Wilkes (Bates), the "number one fan" of Paul's heroine Misery Chastaine. Annie is also somewhat unstable, and Paul finds himself crippled, drugged and at her mercy.

Continuity mistake: When Buster and his wife Virginia, first get in their 4x4 truck to head down the road, they discover that broken tree limb. Before he yells "stop!", the only part of the road not covered in snow is the tire tracks. After he walks back up the hill (and Annie drives by), the road has no snow on it.
